Does anyone know if he died from Epilepsy? Just curious because I'm very involved in the Epilepsy foundation as well because of my nephew. May he rest in peace!

Ray Clark was the epitome of "Chicago's Finest". While he served as a Deputy Chief, he also served as THE CHIEF OF DETECTIVES.

Ray was always a first-class gentleman and a prince of a boss who was admired and respected by all. They don't make 'em like Ray Clark anymore.

God bless him and my deepest condolences to the Clark Family.

Chief Clark was a soft-spoken man of honor and integrity. May he now rest in peace after his courageous fight with cancer.

Chief Ray Clark was a gentleman.

He can be seen in the photo at this address:

From the top of the photo, then Deputy Chief Ray Clark is in the second row and is the third person from the left. He is seated next to his longtime friend, then Commander Tim Daly, who is second from the left in the same row.

Both Chief Ray Clark and Deputy Chief Tim Daly were gentleman and are now both gone. It was an honor to know them.

Just wondering . . .

who was the female exempt in the photo?

I did not think they had any in the mid-1980s.

Marilyn O'Reagan (sic). She was the Commander of the Traffic Division, however, she was a police matron from way back, not a police officer.

Will SCC or anyone else post this as a LINK so we can just click on it to see the pic? I tried twice and gave up.

May Chief Clark rest in peace.

Oops! Forgot one!

AFAIK, in row #3 from the top and third from the right is Kathy Kajari, then Director of News Affairs. She was a sworn Youth Officer when promoted to Director.

In row #5 from the top and second from the right is Marilyn O'Reagan, Commander of the Traffic Division. She was a police matron, which accounts for the different uniform cap.
